RIP Don. It was a pleasure reading about his escapades.

As unbelievable as it may sound I was reading Kenneth Anderson's Omnibus right before I opened IFG and the book lies next to me as I write this.

R I P Don Anderson! May he rest in peace amongst his father's favourite haunts around the Biligarangan Hills and the Soliga Tribes! Truly - a Bangalorean (Scotsman)!

RIP Don.

Read Kenneth Anderson's hunting tales so many times when we were in school and almost got into that perennial debate during tiffin break and off-periods ... who was the best hunter of them all

An era is coming to an end.

As I was on net and by chance searched for Donald "DON" Anderson. Strangely very few details come up in search ever there is no Wikipedia page on him. where as as a forum we have some members who met him personally. As a forum we share the common interest and passion so my humble request is, can't we create a Wikipedia Page on Don Anderson. may be this will be our homage from this forum to this great hunter.
